Thread Name: Nasty Nursery Rhymes
Subject: RE: Nasty Nursery Rhymes
The Georgie Best one was sung around Manchester in the late 60s as:-

Georgie Best
Superstar
Walks like a woman
And wears a bra.

Anyway, my daughter inadvertently composed her own nasty rhyme at the tender age of 3. I hadn't realised that the tunes of "I had a little nutmeg" and Goosie Goosie Gander" were the same. She had muddled these up and added a dose of the book "The Little Postman", resulting in:-

I had a little postman
But nothing would he bear
So I took him by the nutmegs
And threw him down the stairs

That one went down really well at playgroup - I think they were ready to send out Social Services to us!

Night, night
